  • Notes 
    • Catharine's father's will, signed 5 Dec 1809 and probated 12 Mar 1810, among other things, bequeathed property to his children, including daughter "Catharine Huppy wife of Frederick Huppy ... to have share and share alike both of my real and personal estate [with exceptions]." Frederick County Will Book RB #1, p. 82.

      Writing about Catharine's daughter Rachel and her husband, Doyle F. Wildasin, History and Genealogy of the Stonesifer Family of Maryland and Pennsylvania (Hanover, PA: 1983), p. 124, wrote:
      "Abraham Daniel [Stonesifer] ... married Rachel Hoppe - b. Dec. 29, 1805 - d. Oct. 7, 1846.... Rachel was a sister of John Henry Hoppe... Their father was Ferdinand Frederick Hoppe from Stuttgart, Germany who, after immigrating to America @ 1800, came to what is now Carroll Co., married Catharine Snouffer, and settled in the area of Jerusalem Church in Bachman's Valley. In earlier years this church was often referred to as Bower's Church & Bachman's Church...."

      Catharine is mentioned obliquely in connection with her son by J.T.Scharf, HISTORY OF WESTERN MARYLAND, p. 951 (1882), which states: "J.Henry Hoppe was born ... Feb. 17, 1801.... His mother was Catharine Snouffer, of Frederick County."

      Catharine Snouffer Hoppe Werbel and her husband were sponsors of her grandson Ashton Hoppe's baptism. See vol. 10, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, p. 79 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds; 1995), which contains a record from "The German Church" or Zion Church, Manchester, MD, as follows: "Ashton Alexander, son of Frederick and Lea Hoppe, b. 7 Feb. 1834, bp. 20 Apr 1834. Sponsors: Frederick and Catherine Werbel."

      Her tombstone reads: "In Memory of | CATHARINE | wife of Frederick Werble, dec'd | formerly the widow of | Ferdinand Frederick Hoppe | Born Jun 14th 1782 | Died June 1st 1861 | Aged 78 Years, 11 Months | & 17 days".
